A program provides help to people with autism to get jobs

South Carolina – In Tennessee, a new initiative called “Devices for Autism” is helping individuals with autism find employment. This program is run by The Electronics Reuse & Recycling Alliance (TERRA), which is focusing on dismantling old laptops and tablets that are sent in for recycling. Steven Napoli, the President and CEO of TERRA, explained that their goal is to offer eco-friendly ways to manage electronic waste, while also creating job opportunities for people with autism.

“TERRA is committed to providing simple, secure and sustainable electronic recycling solutions addressing the growing problem of e-waste,” said Steven Napoli, TERRA President and CEO. “The Devices for Autism initiative allows us to focus on this objective while also providing an opportunity for individuals with Autism to pursue meaningful careers.”

TERRA highlights that electronic waste is one of the fastest-growing waste categories globally, with millions of devices discarded each year. The “Devices for Autism” program not only aims to reduce this waste but also emphasizes inclusivity and the development of new skills for participants.

Currently, the program accepts used electronic devices from eight states: Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. People in these states can send their devices to the program without any charge.
